Since 1888, the National Geographic Society has stood for science, discovery and storytelling. Now, the nonprofit organization plans to continue that mission, backed by the Murdoch media empire. In a deal announced on Wednesday and valued at $725 million, the National Geographic Society and 21st Century Fox are creating a for-profit joint venture that encompasses the National Geographic Channels cable television group along with National Geographic’s other properties.
Fox will own 73 percent of the new venture, called National Geographic Partners, and the National Geographic Society will own 27 percent.
The deal faced immediate questions over how that science-driven mission of National Geographic would fare now that it was in closer alignment with 21st Century Fox. Scientists have disputed comments about climate change made by Rupert Murdoch, 21st Century Fox’s executive chairman. In response to the concern about conflicting outlooks, executives underscored that the agreement builds upon an 18-year partnership between the two groups for National Geographic Channels, a moneymaking venture of domestic and international cable TV channels available in more than 500 million homes in 171 countries. They added that Declan Moore, a 20-year veteran of the National Geographic Society, would work as chief executive of the venture.
James Murdoch said he was personally committed to continuing the culture and the mission of National Geographic as it has existed.
The partnership between the nonprofit organization and one of the world’s largest media companies comes about a month after the announcement of a partnership between the Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit group behind the children’s television program, and HBO, the premium cable network — signaling how both types of organizations are wrestling with similar challenges as digital transformation upends the business. But while the Sesame-HBO partnership, which brings first-run episodes of “Sesame Street” exclusively to HBO and its streaming outlets this fall, helped ease funding pressures faced by Sesame Workshop, executives and analysts characterized the Fox-National Geographic partnership as more opportunistic.
He called the Fox-National Geographic cable television venture “one of the most successful partnerships” that not only paid healthy dividends to the society and to Fox but also created programming that built the National Geographic brand around the world. David Bank, an analyst with RBC Capital Markets, said that National Geographic provided Fox with the rights to an unusual collection of material that travels around the world and across digital platforms. The deal is one of the first major developments at Fox since James Murdoch was named chief executive in June.
In a deal worth over $725 million, the National Geographic Society has sold a majority shareholding to media mogul, Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox.
The Washington Post reports that many magazine subscribers have voiced their concern at the deal. Butterflies spatter the shoreline of the Juruena River in Brazil’s new 4.7-million-acre (2-million-hectare) Juruena National Park. The 355-foot (108-meter) drop of Victoria Falls just inches away, a swimmer stands at the lip of a hidden pool—an eight-foot-deep (two-meter-deep) divot in the riverbed rock—accessible only when the Zambezi River runs low. A school of snorkelers struggles to keep pace with a whale shark—the world’s biggest fish, which can grow more than 60 feet (18 meters) long.

The National Geographic Society was formed in January 1888 and managed to put out the first issue of the magazine a scant nine months later in October. 18 years ago, The National Geographic society partnered with 20th Century Fox to bring content to television, recognizing that cable and the internet were going to be new venues to promote scientific exploration and education.
The new company is called National Geographic Partners and joins the National Geographic cable channels with the National Geographic magazines, National Geographic Studios, the company’s digital platforms and social media accounts, books, maps, children’s media, location-based entertainment, archival sales, catalog, licensing and, e-commerce businesses. It looks like 20th Century Fox forked over $725 million for the privilege of being the owner of the majority of National Geographic Partners, which would put the National Geographic Society’s endowment at about one billion dollars. 20th Century Fox, of course, gets to own a brand that has been recognizable to the general public for well over 100 years, and gets all the credibility that comes with it.
Could be good or bad, depending on your view of media purchases and future actions of all involved, but National Geographic is now part of the Fox family.

The $725 million from Fox will increase its endowment to about $1 billion and allow it to double its investment in science, research and education work.
Susan Goldberg, editor in chief of National Geographic magazine, will continue in her role.
He said the new company would expand on that partnership, creating a storytelling machine that would feed a proliferation of screens. He said the National Geographic channels could not only be bundled with Fox’s broader portfolio of sports, news, comedy, drama and other channels, to increase its leverage with TV distributors, but could also be part of a direct-to-consumer streaming offering in the long term. This now means that National Geographic magazine will now combine with the Fox-owned National Geographic TV channels.

The first iteration of the magazine was text-only — the format didn’t change to emphasize photos until after 1900. This week, 20th Century Fox bought a majority share of the rest of National Geographic’s consumer-facing stuff, including the magazine. The CEO of the new Natinal Geographic Partners, Declan Moore, used to be the Chief Media Officer at the National Geographic Society, and the first Chairman of the equally-Fox-and-NGS board is Gary Knell, the NGS President and CEO so in theory the same creative direction could be maintained, just with more resources on hand and without the headaches of being a non-profit company running a series of magazines and websites. That seems to be the upside for the Society: a bigger investment in research and education.
Although they own the majority of the new company that controls everything, they only occupy half of the Board of Directors of that company.

The rationale for doing so is in order to to increase the amount of money available for investment into its science, research and education programs. The magazine has been the most consumer-facing product of the Society which also has funded scientific research and studies it has documented. Basically, Fox is helping transition things like National Geographic magazine into the for-profit sector. It has a museum in Washington DC where it was founded and hosts a geography bee living up to the Society’s initial goal of promoting geographic knowledge. This is the first time in 127 years that the Society hasn’t been in control of the magazine.
